The course blends online with face-to-face teaching and is about the role of the teacher in student-centred teaching. Upon completion of the blended learning course, participants will have acquired knowledge, skills, and competences on pedagogical principles pertaining to being a university teacher who can reflect on their own and colleagues' teaching practice.
During the course, participants will develop and complete first draft of a personal teaching portfolio on teaching qualifications, which can be used in appointments for future academic positions. Furthermore, they will acquire knowledge about strategies to evaluate teaching with the aim of applying a student-centred approach in teaching and creating alignment between the different elements and phases of teaching.
A learning diploma is given upon satisfactory completion of the course as well as an e-booklet with the course content.
